    Some great news

    Matt Thomas

      Here is a little great news that happened last week.


      I attend Utah State University for Mechanical and Areospace engineering school. I have about 2 years left of the program. When i first started, i was looking into the MAE1200 course named Engineering graphics. I was told that since it is a first year class, and i had the credit transferred from another institution, that i could not take it again because of a two year wait line. At my other institution, engineering graphics, the professor decided to do 2D drawings and not solid modeling(well, we had an intro 6 hour tutorial on PRO-E but it was optional)


      Ok, with this said, i had completely forgotten about this course. So i called the professor of it and he enrolled me into last semesters class for free. So i get access to all the videos he has done. The actual final exam for the class if enrolled is the CWSA. Sadly, i do not have access to the 2 practice exams that were posted..


      I find this to be great news because now i have a chance haha. But it does have 2 cons that i am trying to work around:


      1. Do not have access to the CSWA practice exams and any material that could help me out

      2.Im not in the class to hear the actual lectures, that feel in any gaps i missed in the videos.


      Other than that, i am pretty excited.

          You can get sample exam here CSWA - Academic SOLIDWORKS


          Also check out the CSWA preparation course on MySolidWorks CSWA Exam Prep Course


          Finally the on the virtual tester, you can take the free sample exam for CSWA/CSWP which would help you get idea on the actual exam.



          Best of luck!!

              thanks for this. I have learned a LOT from the USU professors videos. For example, i learned that i can drill holes at an angle, but need to do so by adding another sketch plane, i learned i can add points and midpoints to a drawing, i also learned how to create a plane that intersects multiple sides of a part to machine that face, and lastly, i am learning about the material properties box where i can change the material type and it will show me mass, density and what not.


              Thanks all
